Lost - interesting reality TV
I just watched this 3-episode series on Foxtel, A1 channel in Australia. I'm not a huge reality TV fan but this compacted series had a lot of merit. It was quite amazing to watch 6 people with basically no funds find their way from nowhere Bolivia to New York in less than a month. It's a pity there was never a follow up. Talk about survivors. These people found ways to earn money and negotiate free travel using their wiles and their wit, and every one had a unique approach depending on their personality. There's a lot to be learned about travelling on the cheap from a show like this. It was also interesting to see parts of South America evidently far far from the tourist trail and have a glimpse into the lives of people you and I are never going to meet.
